River Plate vs.  San Lorenzo - Pre-Match - October 17, 2021

(ESPN.com) – River, leader of the Professional League with 33 points, will host San Lorenzo this Sunday at 8.15pm, in the classic that will be played on date 16 of the contest.

The game will be played at the Monumental, with the arbitration of Facundo Tello.

The two teams arrive with presents very different from this classic. River won seven of the last eight games it played, and beats Talleres by one point, which will play this Sunday at 3:45 p.m. visiting Colón.

On the next date the T will receive the Millionaire in Córdoba, in what may be a decisive match for the future of the championship.

San Lorenzo, on the other hand, led by Paolo Montero, still cannot find the way. The team lost six of the last 11 games played, adding only two wins and three draws.

The good news for Marcelo Gallardo is to recover several players who returned from their respective teams, such as the cases of Franco Armani and Julián Alvarez.

But he has several unknowns due to the injuries of Paulo Díaz, Fabricio Angileri, Nicolás De la Cruz and Enzo Pérez, in doubt, plus the casualties of Braian Romero and Jonatan Maidana,

For his part, Héctor David Martínez could return, already recovered from a tear.

On the side of San Lorenzo, Andrés Herrera would enter for the injured Alejandro Donatti, while Néstor Ortigoza, with a discomfort, could be replaced by Alexis Sabella.

San Lorenzo has a hard time: questioned by its people, with the fans also angry with the leadership, Paolo Montero knows that a lot is at stake in his visit to the Monumental.
The history indicates that 207 games were played, with 79 victories for River, 57 for San Lorenzo and 71 draws.
